Plot Summary


Lies are forbidden and love is doubly forbidden. In the near future, when young people in Japan turn sixteen, they are assigned a marriage partner by the government. People don't have to go through the trouble of looking for someone, and everyone accepts that the country will find a compatible partner to make them happy. Yukari Nejima is fifteen years old. He lives in a small corner of the country, and just can't seem to get ahead in life. Both academically and athletically he's below average. But within him, he hides a heart burning with passion! In this world in which love is forbidden, what will happen to him when he falls in love?


Koi to Uso (Love and Lies) is getting a TV anime adaptation.

Over 120 chapter to adapt. Although the length isn't long, I think they can at least make this into a 1-cour show. Not sure which studio yet though.

Why did you post that in this thread? If you are asking about Shimoneta it doesn't belong here. If you are asking about Love and Lies, the answer would be no unless they radically change things (I've been reading the manga), but then it's confusing that you posted a Shimoneta image.

Some people have never watched the show, but that someone isn't me.

Love being forbidden is not the same as perceived lewdness being forbidden.

I'll be honest too. If the premise of Love and Lies is truly that love is outright "forbidden" then I lost track of that pretty early on in the manga, as the focus seems to be that government matchmaking has become the norm, and that people simply don't rely on loving their partners before the match is made. But I won't say more than that, as I don't want to get into spoiler territory.

They don't get married at that age. They just get assigned their partner.

BTW, although the manga pic, to which this info is solely sourced as to present, claims it is getting anime version; things can change between now/then. A bit early for anticipation thread, perhaps...


In either case, nice work Mr. Stark. Think u even beat ANN to the headline. The noobs...

Damn, I've lost a bit of interest of the manga over time, but excited for the adaptation.

WOW! I am kind of surprised that it is getting an anime adaptation... At this point in the manga, it actually has me left clueless as to where it is heading... I can't really tell which girl the clueless idiot will end up with...


While it has 120 chapters, each chapter is so dang short that there is not doubt they'll be able to cover the content in 1 cour. Most chapters are 8 pages max, some shorter, and the pages are pretty sparse panel wise as well. If you compare it to your standard weekly manga, it would take four or five of them to make a single chapter I'd say, so we're talking about something like around 30 chapters of normal manga content.
